The show you mention is a great one from a relatively untapped era (as far as DPs and Vault releases go). If you're into the early Mydland period, I would recommend this show.

This info is from http://www.blairjackson.com/jg_on_cd.htm >>

Dick's Picks Vol. 5: Oakland Auditorium Arena, 12/26/79
(Released 1996, GDR) **** (4 out of 5)

This three-CD set is nicely representative of the early days of Brent's tenure with the group. The first set (Disc One) doesn't contain many of my own favorites, but it's very well played and filled with energy. Disc Two is a mind-blower, however, with sparkling versions of "Uncle John's Band" and "Estimated Prophet," lots of inventive jamming after "Estimated" and "He's Gone," and a gritty, rough-and-tumble "Other One." The third disc contains a rare late-set "Brokedown Palace" and a surprise encore — "Shakedown Street" into the final instrumental/vocal reprise of "Uncle John's Band"; a slam-bang one-two punch.

Songs: Disc One — Cold Rain and Snow; C.C. Rider; Dire Wolf; Me & My Uncle > Big River; Brown-Eyed Women; New Minglewood Blues; Friend of the Devil; Looks Like Rain; Alabama Getaway > Promised Land

Disc Two — Uncle John's Band > Estimated Prophet > jam > He's Gone > The Other One > drums

Disc Three — Jam > Not Fade Away > Brokedown Palace > Around & Around > Johnny B. Goode; Shakedown Street > Uncle John's reprise

In my worthless opinion, DP's 8, 10, 14, and 18 are absolutely top-notch stuff, my favorites overall. Buying any of them is good, though, as it encourages the band to keep putting out material, and you get a top-shelf recording of a very good show or run.

Every dick pick is worth getting, just get the ones that have setlists your interested in or years you enjoy.

Sure man, they're all worth the money----to someone. I have yet to be disappointed by any of the releases I've purchased. I've not bought this particular show, but I did borrow a friends copy back when it came out (back before CD burners were so ubiquitous) & I liked it a lot. And if you enjoy '79 shows, you'll probably like it to.

Happy downloading!
